Turkey season is underway and long time HIVIZ Pro Staffer, Marty Fischer is hard at it again!
Besides Marty shooting a bird last Monday in South Carolina with seven beards, one of the highest scoring birds ever taken in the state, he is busy on the road again for his next appearance and competition!
The next few weeks Marty and Todd Cast, hosts of TNT Outdoor Explosion TV are preparing as one of the Celebrity Teams at the upcoming World Turkey Hunting Championships in Clay County, Texas where they will be competing for the title of Turkey Fest World Champion. They will have two and a half days to hunt.
The 3rd Annual Old West Invitational Turkey Shoot is next on Marty’s list for May 10-12 in Hulett, WY. As a celebrity hunter for the weekend of turkey hunting, Marty will be helping to raise funds for research, education and habitat projects that benefit the state’s game and nongame species as well as improve Hulett’s community center.

Next week is the beginning of the IWA Outdoor Classics in Nuremberg, Germany, the European counterpart to our SHOT Show.
Follow us there as we exhibit in Hall #2, Stand #425. The show begins March 9th and runs for four days. The general purpose of the show is the same, but with the very European atmosphere. Bratwurst, sauerkraut, infamous Nuremberg sausages and other traditional German foods served in the open air food courts tempt you. All the major gun manufacturers in attendance, wine and sometimes beer catered very elegantly in the larger booths…not like it is at SHOT Show, but with a little more flare and sophistication in Europe, or perhaps it’s just the surroundings that make it seem so. After all, you have visitors from every country imagninable there from the very older tradional style German huntsman, in traditional attire, to the USA Pavillion area, to the Turkish and Russian manufacturers all in the very impecable European suits.
It promises to be a very productive show for all involved! Check out the 2012 IWA Outdoor Classics on the web for more information.
